AFCO Low Friction GM Upper and Lower Ball Joints

AFCO Low Friction Ball Joints are designed with 2 ft. lbs. of resistance, the force required to move the stud of the ball joint.  Compare this with standard replacement joints, with as high as 50 ft. lbs. of resistance.  A difference you can feel!

It is critical to handling that suspension components be as free as possible to move.  Low friction ball joints allow the suspension to give rather than allowing the tire to bounce over rough surfaces.  Low tire pressures magnify the need to minimize friction in the suspension.

  • Upper Ball Joint Type: Bolt-in
  • Lower Ball Joint Type: Press-in
  • Degree of Taper: 10 degree
  • Material Type: Steel
  • Position: Upper and Lower
  • Moog Upper Ball Joint Equivalent Part # K5208
  • Moog Lower Ball Joint Equivalent Part # K6145

Notes

  • Precision machined to tight tolerances, providing consistent resistance throughout the travel of the ball joint to deliver consistent performance
  • Improves weight transfer
  • Frees up suspension for more consistent, repeatable chassis tuning
  • Removes suspension rigidity and allows shock and spring to have more precise wheel control
  • Adjustments are controlled more effectively by the shock and spring instead of the tire which improves traction
  • Provides more accurate set-ups during vehicle scaling
  • Meets or exceeds standard ball joint strength
  • Stock appearing
  • Lower input steering efforts and faster steering wheel return
